What can you do with the SEO Spider Tool?
The SEO Spider is a powerful and flexible site crawler, able to crawl both small and very large websites efficiently, while allowing you to analyse the results in real-time. It gathers key onsite data to allow SEOs to make informed decisions.
Find Broken Links
Crawl a website instantly and find broken links (404s) and server errors. Bulk export the errors and source URLs to fix, or send to a developer.
Find temporary and permanent redirects, identify redirect chains and loops, or upload a list of URLs to audit in a site migration.
Analyse Page Titles & Meta Data
Analyse page titles and meta descriptions during a crawl and identify those that are too long, short, missing, or duplicated across your site.
Discover Duplicate Content
Discover exact duplicate URLs with an md5 algorithmic check, partially duplicated elements such as page titles, descriptions or headings and find low content pages.
Extract Data with XPath
Collect any data from the HTML of a web page using CSS Path, XPath or regex. This might include social meta tags, additional headings, prices, SKUs or more!
Review Robots & Directives
View URLs blocked by robots.txt, meta robots or X-Robots-Tag directives such as ‘noindex’ or ‘nofollow’, as well as canonicals and rel=“next” and rel=“prev”.
Generate XML Sitemaps
Quickly create XML Sitemaps and Image XML Sitemaps, with advanced configuration over URLs to include, last modified, priority and change frequency.
Integrate with Google Analytics
Connect to the Google Analytics API and fetch user data, such as sessions or bounce rate and conversions, goals, transactions and revenue for landing pages against the crawl.
Visualise Site Architecture
Evaluate internal linking and URL structure using interactive crawl and directory force-directed diagrams and tree graph site visualisations.
